Kim Zolciak is quite happy to be rid of the rest of her Housewives costars, thank you very much. Except for one, of course.
Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes were on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta for five seasons. And now the pair are headed into their own series called NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches.
Of course, coming from a franchise that was loaded with drama, Kim Zolciak would have something to say about where she came from.
“It will be good not having anyone interfering with NeNe and I. We’re back to we started twelve years ago, no other noise,” Kim told us. “No other people talking nonsense. It will just be her and I and we have a really good time.”
NeNe Leakes agrees.
“Well, one of the things I’m most excited about is working with Kim, just the two of us,” she said. “I just left Housewives where I was working with like, six monsters. Working on a show like [Real Housewives] tears friendships apart. It’s hard.”
Even though drama is the Real Housewives franchise stock in trade, some people eventually got tired of it being the focus and wanted to see their favorite personalities in less pressured situatiuons.
“Enough is enough,” Kim Zolciak said about her old show. “People get tired of watching the drama. Like, I love my life, she loves her life, we’ve both been very successful. We’re just going to have fun. It will be good for me to get away, all the kiddos, get a break.”
That isn’t to say that there will be no drama on the new show, but it will be toned down.
“We had drama before Housewives. We got into little arguments but we always worked it out,” Kim said.
“With friends, you have disagreements. I just don’t want us to ever go so far that we can’t come back,” NeNe said.
“I don’t think that will happen,” Kim responded. “Honestly, I don’t because you don’t have anyone else fueling the fire.”
